So Dallas is projected to have slightly more job growth according to Forbe's which should be taken with a grain of salt to begin with anyways. Dallas better hurry fast though cause it still has a long ways to go catching up with the number of "Forbe's Best" small & large companies in Houston. Median income is almost exactly the same, but it costs more to live in Big D.

Let me ask you this.

How many skyscrapers is Dallas building in its CBD right now or has planned? Houston has several over the 500 ft. mark.

That's why Houston is so big! You can't help but live in Houston because there is hardly any suburbs!

Matt, take it for what it is. Houston doesnt have to be the best at everything. Dallas has alot more business in the suburbs, so what?

I dont even know why i bother replying, since i know you just say stuff to bash Houston, with your Pro-Dallas agenda.

Greater Houston covers more than 10,000 sq.miles, so their is plenty of room for suburbs. Of, which less than 1,133 sq. miles is actually land.

Back to the other argument.
Dallas, does, i think have better job growth predictions.

But that doesnt matter, Houston has beaten Dallas on way more ranks and lists, than vice versa, and that doesn't seem to affect Dallasites much, at least the ones that arent pretentious.

No one is really "prospering" in this recession, "making it" is a better way of putting it. The projects that are off the ground in both cities began before the economy tanked in the last quarter of 2008. Houston will continue to attract large corporations to its downtown, while Dallas will get left in the wind for its suburbs.
